In my current role as EMEA CEO of Talent International, I’m fortunate that I get to work with every type of business, from large multi-national corporations to SMEs. However, some of our most interesting work takes place with start-ups.
The global tech start-up community is infectious. The entire ecosystem is full of innovative, passionate entrepreneurs. In that sense, nothing has changed; today’s aspiring business leaders still have the same fiery determination that encouraged me to start my first business. Although, despite sharing the same core characteristics and values, there are many differences between today’s entrepreneur and the business leader of yesteryear; these differences run much deeper than the stereotypical casual dress code and office beanbags.
